Aloha kind folks,
Just wanted to let you all know about my upcoming CD & LP "Harpin' on the Dead", currently under production and being funded on IndieGoGo page www.indiegogo.com/projects/harpin-on-the-dead. This album will be part of the Rex Foundation’s musical caravan.
On the acoustic songs (Standing on the Moon, Ripple, Box of Rain, Black Muddy River), the instrumentation ranges from solo harp and voice to accompaniment with acoustic guitar and upright bass. On the electric songs (Eyes of the World, Franklin’s Tower, They Love Each Other, Scarlet -> Fire, Lady -> Terrapin) , we are joined by drums and incredible electric guitar played by Steve Inglis (Palolo Jones, House of Spirits). Acoustic and rhythm guitar is by Tom SanFilippo (Half Step). In some ways, the harp fills in for the keyboards. Anela sings lead vocals, backed by other members of the band.
The cover art was commissioned from William Giese (Deadicated), and turned out so well that a limited run of 12” vinyl LPs will be available, in addition to CDs, t-shirts, posters and giclees (fine art prints on canvas – available only as perks on the IndieGoGo campaign). The album is currently in production with an estimated release date of May 2013. Shows are planned for summer of 2013 (TBA).
Thank you so much for your support and please help spread the word! Peace & Blessings, Anela
